“What’s that? We’re supposed to hate all ‘infidels’ and ban their churches? We’re true sons of Allah here… my pops got on well with the Russian neighbours, so do I, and so shall my son… you got a problem with that? Wanna rumble?”
THIS is the face of Russian Islam… do NOT listen to the hate spewed by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. If you vote for the Republican Party, you vote for religious hatred and bigotry… NEVER forget that.
According to the Russian Islamic Conciliar Association (all-Russian Muftiate) (RAIS), the Russian state should outlaw the ideology of Wahhabism. Mufti Farid Salman, the head of the Ulema Council of the RAIS, wrote in an article published on Interfax-Religion, “Should we ban Wahhabism in Russia? Yes! It’s a necessity. The very future of the Russian state hangs upon finding a solution to this most pressing problem”. In Mufti Salman’s opinion, banning Wahhabism in Russia “can’t be affected by our relationship with one or another country. In some countries (like Saudi Arabia: Interfax) Wahhabism may be the state ideology, if that’s what the people there want. If we prohibit Wahhabism throughout the Russian Federation, the Russian state authority would operate within the framework of its legal code, it would uphold its sovereignty, and, most importantly, it would be for the sake of our future”.

President Ramzan Kadyrov (1976- ) of Chechnya
President Ramzan Kadyrov of Chechnya supported the teaching of religion as an established part of the curriculum of the state schools. “I support this proposal, for spiritual and moral training must be taught in our schools”, he said in a radio interview on Ekho Moskvy. Kadyrov mentioned that he advocates the teaching of the principles of Islam in the Chechen state schools. “If our young people were taught what Wahhabis truly are, we’d have no conflict, and no new Basayevs and Khattabs would appear”, he said. Kadyrov believed that terrorists in Chechnya “used Wahhabi ideology to further their interests”. He thought that the religious education of the younger generation shouldn’t only be in the hands of the parents, “for in all other subjects, this isn’t the case”. Kadyrov deplored some current trends amongst youth, saying, “What are some young people doing now? They go about undressed, this leads to lewd behaviour and other evil things”. President Kadyrov thinks that the study of religious principles in school helps to foster in students a proper love of the motherland and a due respect for their elders.
